Would have been cool to do a custom loop with these components

StarBlazer457 2 points 11 months ago

Agreed.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

This i something we discuss along with considering the EK Predator ultimately came down to timing and chassis compatibility issues initially. Overall though this is more representative of the vast majority of builds. That being noted In future projects we discuss with PCPP we may look at doing something in the middle ( like using expandable solutions like EK Predator ).

teambronze5 2 points 11 months ago

OPINION: I feel like a 6700k and hero/ hero alpha would fit better with the majority of builds. Almost every build I see is a 6700k paired with a 1080. Not many can afford a 6850k and a rampage 10th addition. Thats why I feel those parts are worthy of watercooling.

@00.25 that smile....

Yep I understand when you are surrounded by all those components... :)

I also want to build one!!!

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

That would be me if I was swarmed by such high-end components... It's human nature.

pegotico 2 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

:)

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Actually, the simple answer is to start a tech YouTube channel. Gain enough subscribers even with a cheap PC, and companies will follow.

XanderDude11 1 point 11 months ago

"Simple"

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Well...

100,000 Subscribers should do it. =-)

CelestialFire 2 points 11 months ago

If only I had the ROG case (which isn't out, and may only be available to pre-built pcs [Ironside, cyber power, etc.]) and the ROG claymore, I would instantly make this build.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

The Claymore will be coming out shortly ( in the next 7 to 10 days ). As for the chassis, ROG does not produce a chassis but we are working with partners to have ROG Certified options. That being noted there are a lot of awesome chassis that compliment the look and feel of ROG boards.

CelestialFire 1 point 11 months ago

Oh that's cool, thanks for replying.

StarBlazer457 2 points 11 months ago

I wouldn't mind if Asus sent me some parts "To help celebrate the 10th anniversary of Republic of Gamers"

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Make sure to participate in future contests as I can tell you for sure we have more to giveaway in the future!

StarBlazer457 1 point 11 months ago

Alright. Thanks!

Only thing is getting it to happen. Just gotta find out how. Save me crap ton of money.

StarBlazer457 1 point 11 months ago

Haha. See I don't have that kind of luck. If you ever decided(which I don't think you will) to sell that(MSI)computer you can make some money off of that.

Um... I don't think that timestamp is right, BoyScout... ;-)

Anyways, really nice build. How's the V71 doing so far?

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

:) It ran pretty nicely -- be sure to check out the third video.

We waited to post it on the front page until we had all the content ready. The build video went live last week, but we had a delay in getting the lighting demo and benchmarking video together. Hope you enjoyed the content!

Chooses not to respond

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

No comment.

WirelessCables 1 Build 0 points 11 months ago

Ironic much? =-)

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Like rain, on build video days.

JasonLavender 1 point 11 months ago

Which screw driver is he using?

WirelessCables 1 Build 2 points 11 months ago

He stole Linus's screwdriver, and painted it blue.

After this video was up, he gave it back to Linus like a true BoyScout.

StarBlazer457 1 point 11 months ago

Sir, the exit is out to the left.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

Here's the one we use in most of our videos: Williams WRS-1 Magnetic Ratcheting Screwdriver

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Nobody got my reference... ; - ;

StarBlazer457 2 points 11 months ago

Nope. :(

Great vids!

SilverWolf149 1 point 11 months ago

You guys should do a custom cooling loop build guide! That would be freaking awesome!

pattonpda99 1 point 11 months ago

you should have chosen a better looking case honestly.... that case is awful looking

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

It's pretty hard to keep using 'original' cases. The Thermaltake V71 isn't popular like the NZXT S340, for example. So the staff used the V71 to keep the selection interesting and new.

But, I agree. There are way too many drive cages in the front.

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Depends on the user ( in regards to HD cages ) I have a system where i have 4 mechanical HD outside of my SSD and M.2. That being noted the important part is that the chassis offer flexibility depending on layout considerations. In this respect you can remove the cages in the V71.

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

True, you can remove the cages. However, I wish there were hidden cages (in the V71) like on the S340 Elite, or a PSU cover to hide at least 2 cages or something.


where i have 4 mechanical HD

Company files, huh? ;-)

Terabytes FTW

ASUSTECHMKTJJ ASUS 6 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

LOL no i shot alot of video and photography but years of backups of different game, mods as well high-resolution audio. True professionals keep their work and play systems separate.

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

True...

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Ha ha!

But... 8TB of emails? Don't think so...

pattonpda99 1 point 11 months ago

i just think that it looks to bulky and its aesthetic is lacking about 10 years.

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Yeah

Radox-0 3 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Great video. Love this motherboard board, sadly does not fit in my cases :(

Did you guys try manually OCing the chip, curious as to how much further it could go.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

Thanks -- glad you enjoyed the video.

Due to time constraints, we didn't really do much tweaking beyond what was shown. The first time we overclocked it, we were actually at a slightly higher 4.4 GHz result. It was running decent for a while, but we eventually ran into a few suspected instability issues while trying to push the GPU higher and decided to back it off to the auto-tuning results shown in the video.

Jaime.g 1 point 11 months ago

Man I really wish I had a PC like that. I'm stuck with a pre-built for now.

Blackcobalt 1 point 11 months ago

I have some questions. I'm learning to build gaming rigs and to mod them. I have the CM Trooper case and ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO ALPHA LGA 1151. I would like to buy the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme, ZT-P10800B-10P but I don't know if it will fit and I'm worry because I don't want to waste money ordering it

iamKRP 1 point 10 months ago

Has anyone managed to fit one of these into a Phanteks Evolv case? I've only been able to find a few comments saying the case suggests a slightly smaller E-ATX board, but I'm curious if anyone's experimented. I'm looking to build my first PC and love the Evolv case + want to have a great mobo.

BoyScout staff submitter 21 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Sadly, no. We actually tried fitting it into an Enthoo Evolve ATX case while we had it, but it was a no-go. Those beautiful "edge-of-board" LED lighting zones are created by the presence of a pretty thick back plate on the Rampage V Edition 10. The Evolve has an upward angle next to the motherboard tray right where the main routing holes are that end up hitting the back plate, causing it to raise about a 1/4 inch off the mounting holes. So unfortunately, it physically couldn't mount without risking significant damage to the board.

Sir... the window is on your left

WirelessCables 1 Build 1 point 11 months ago

Well, 17,811 people do, apparently.

Facts correct at time of writing. Facts are not guaranteed to not change in some way.

Would you mind if I asked for your opinion on this planned build? It'd be my fist and your beard of cotton balls somehow screams

Come, my children
